Years of research, tasting and retesting and the pure, local Finnish water used in Kalevala Gin, have created a wonderfully fresh, savoury flavour.
A multicultural background, diverse interests and constant curiosity made Moritz Wüstenberg a master distiller. During frequent visits to his mother´s home in Finland he developed a keen interest in Finland and Finnish culture. For centuries the Kitee region close to the Russian/Finnish border has been (in)famous for producing spirits. A long term ambition to honour the regional tradition of distilling unique products came to life in 2015.
Named after a Finnish Epic, Kalevala Gin is a gin driven by attention to detail. It is made using organic botanicals including; raspberry leaf, rosemary, rosebud and Jerusalem artichoke along with water from their own well to create a gin which is as intriguing as it's namesake poem.
Rich juniper is immediately apparent on the nose, while rosemary and raspberry leaf combine on the palate to create a wonderfully fresh yet slightly savoury taste.
